A flat in Mumbai with a balcony facing the sea has some clothes hung on a clothes line in the balcony. Towards which direction the clothes will be blown in the afternoon? Explain.

Answer :

In the afternoon time the land gets heated much faster than sea and hence the air above the land traps heat and rises up by getting warmed and hence there is formation of pressure difference due to which the cool air above the sea takes place above the land in order to maintain balance , so the air will blow towards the house and the clothes will move in the direction of house and this phenomena is called sea breeze.
